Contract in Brief: A Summary of Writing Class Policy and Procedures

 

 

"Either write things worth reading or do things worth the writing." Benjamin Franklin

 

 

"Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." Anton Chekhov

 

"If a teacher told me to revise, I thought that meant my writing was a broken-down car that needed to go to the repair shop. I felt insulted. I didn't realize the teacher was saying, 'Make it shine. It's worth it.' Now I see revision as a beautiful word of hope. It's a new vision of something. It means you don't have to be perfect the first time. What a relief!"  Naomi Shihab Nye
